Employment Empowerment Academy 

Tacoma Urban League and Bates Technical College are partnering to bring you Employment Empowerment Academy. The Academy consists of a FREE 4-week class that is geared toward assistance with job readiness, job search, training, and labor market information. The program model facilitates ongoing assistance with job placement and connections to training needed for good-paying jobs that provide a pathway to long-term careers. Towards that end, participants will receive 5 credits through Bates Technical College and a student ID upon completion for continuing education.
